But this is not a problem with Common Lisp, is it? :) I think making a clean build of the packages with a good defsystem, then loading them into a virgin image to dump a clean image should have been a satisfactory solution to your boss. If anyone has the kind of problem you have described, I think the proper answer is to teach them to use the implementation's ability to save the world and dump a new image, not to futz around with weird hacks. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
